Nice lathe stand for the money !

Review Summary

This is a great lathe stand for the price. I needed one for the Delta model No. 46-463 Lathe I won in a contest. But rather than paying what Delta wanted for the one that was made for this lathe, I decided to modify this one to fit, since it's cost was about two thirds less than the made to fit Delta stand. I started by cutting the legs off right at the base of the bottom platform.
I then mounted ,with screws, an extra piece of plywood under the frame platform, to which I attached 3" double locking swivel castors at each corner. With the leg cutoff material I made brackets that I fastened to each top end of the stand as shown in the photo's. I added a middle brace as shown to prevent any sag that could occur over time from metal fatigue, since I have also added the bed extension. I actually found this lathe stand for $47.00 from Cripe Distrubing. And shipping costs were also less than Amazon !
